I am not (!) Imelda Marcos.

But close. I DO have a lot of shoes.

I am getting ready to list a few for sale on ebay and that gave me the idea to have a closer look at the ones I own.

You know, I like comfortable shoes. Shoes that look stylish AND that I can walk in. I also like for my shoes to match my outfit. In fact, when packing for a trip, I start with the shoes. I like to wear the most bulky and heavy ones on the plane and carry at most three pairs more.  The shoes determine what clothes I take.

In examining my shoes I thought I will share with you HOW I wear them.  And of course, this being summer, most of my shoes are colorful. Below, I paired a couple of dresses from the store with my orange sandals.

I wear leggings a lot. For two reasons:  number 1 is the fact that I have spider veins (thanks mom!). My legs aren’t the legs I used to have. However, I do like short skirts and dresses – that is where the leggings (or capris) come in. number 2:  it cools off around here quite a bit at night and mornings seem on the cooler side.  Leggings are the answer to my bike ride.

Since the heel on those sandals are purple, I can wear them with a purple dress. I’m not sure you can see my orange (Carnelian) earrings – those tie everything together.

So much for the first installment.

Next up:

my latest acquisition – blue Miz Mooz sandals!

They will go perfectly with this halter dress:

Stay tuned. 🙂
